Monster Love

I made this card using my new digi Monster Love for my very first hosted challenge! The challenge is to create a card or project using one of the free digis that my Mom and I are giving away for a limited time. I colored this guy up for Valentine's Day and also used my new Magnolia tag die! I also stitched around the card which is a sure sign that I was crafting at my Mom's house. ;D

Did you know? The Burr Arch Truss is a combination of an arch and a multiple kingpost truss architecture design. It was invented in 1804 by Theodore Burr and used in bridges, usually covered bridges. The design principle behind the Burr arch truss is that the arch should be capable of bearing the entire load on the bridge while the truss keeps the bridge rigid. The combination of the arch and the truss provides a more stable bridge capable of supporting greater weight than either the arch or truss alone.
